Default O'Donnell fuel source, 1-gal

Can anyone point me to a good online store that sells O'Donnell fuel by the 1-gal container? My favorite stores sell either by the quart, or 4-gal case (too much for me), none sell 1-gal at a time. And my LHS doesn't sell O'Donnell.

Jupiter. There are 2 LHS listed here on the O'Donnell web site, but when I talk to them they don't actually carry it.

You won't find many online shops selling fuel by the gallon due to shipping regulations. You'll probably have to buy it locally if you're looking for 1 gallon.

Look up a HobbyTown. The ones in the Twin Cities here (MN) usually have O Fuel

+1 they sell by case because it takes special shipping that has like hazmat fees.

That's a 4 gallon case. He's looking for 1 single gallon. Like I said you won't find it online due to shipping regulations. They can't just ship you one gallon.

Matt,
Were about 60 miles south of Jupiter in Fort Lauderdale and we carry a all of Odonnells fuel. Unfortunately we cant ship but if you are willing to take a trip we carry it.
